Dog ate chocolate?

Penis comes out when poops.

Species: Dog
Breed: springer/cocker span
Age: 3-6 months
Our 13 weekd old sprocker spaniel's penis is popping out when he poos. This only started this week. Is this normal or do we need to go to the vets. Thank you.




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

I wouldn't be worried about this unless you are seeing that he is having trouble urinating, or if he is unable to get the penis back in after this happens.

It is likely normal!
